Top 10 Books with Colors in the Titles

My first go at a TTT list was almost a bust, but after searching all of my GoodReads shelves, these are the only 8 books that I have read or what to read with colors in the titles.

  1. Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
    • I am slightly terrified to read this book because holy moly is it a long one, but I super want to and I am so interested in this story.
  2. Chain of Gold – Cassandra Clare
    • Oh look, a book that I am no where near close to reading. I challenged myself to catch up on all of Cassie Clare’s works by the end of 2020 and I don’t see myself finishing this challenge but I’m still up for this one.
  3. Twice in a Blue Moon – Christina Lauren
    • I finished this one in 2020 and enjoyed the first half of the book but the second lacked a whole bunch. The cover is still gorgeous though.
  1. Dragonfly in Amber – Diana Gabaldon
    • I’m considering amber a color because it’s the second thing that comes to mind when I read the word. (The first is the lovely @Amberinoface).
  2. The Red Badge of Courage – Stephen Crane
    • Pretty sure this book was made for this TTT. I finished this book for a class in 2019 and sat through many lectures on color theory for this novel.
  3. The Masque of the Red Death – Edgar Allen Poe
    • Another one made for this time. I absolutely love this story.
  4. Sisters Red – Jackson Pearce
    • Red riding hood retelling? Haven’t read or thought about this one in ages! But I do remember loving the sisterly relationship in this one.

Top 10 Tuesday was created by  The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

    I’ve been thinking about this for a while now and realize that, while I love to read, I have a very hard time reading/tackling/trying new books. When I read, I feel the need (almost OCD) to understand every sentence, analyze every word, process every nuance, and remember everything in chronological order. I suppose having mild brain damage will do that to someone as I’m pretty sure that’s the cause of it. When I was younger, I used to read a lot more and had more diversity in my author pool. Anyhoo, the point here is, how do you do it? Do you remember all the books you’ve read? Most times I just revert back to re-reading the series I already know. Enough years go by that I can revisit them with new excitement and new perspectives, and sometimes I end up picturing them completely differently than the first time. Sometimes I re-read them in a different language as that also brings enough interesting differences (although that can also drive me nuts because I notice that shit and feel compelled to over analyze it 😂.) To continue my point, I admire your ability and zest to tackle new books with such ease 😉 Who knows? I might end up picking up a new series/author on your recommendation… once I’m done with “Midnight Sun”, of course 😍 Hope you have a great day!

      I’m not quite sure how certain books and authors seemed to have etched themselves in my mind, but I do use GoodReads and have used it for… a really long time. That helps to keep the novels in line. I am also a quite slow physical reader, and have an easier time remembering details of a physical book than an ebook or audiobook. I have never been able to read a book in a different language and I envy you of that! That is honestly amazing. The closest that I can ever seem to get is an English translation.

        I forgot to mention, English is my third language. I’m French by birth, and also lived in Puerto Rico and Mexico quite a few years (so, the Spanish.) Everyone in my family is fully bilingual, if not trilingual. My mother is French but was raised in Venezuela. My father is French as a result of asylum petition but, really, of Czech ancestry. And I was born near Devil’s Island (yes, the French penal colony 😉) I am probably the strangest individual you’ll ever meet 😂
